Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998] [Criterion] (BLU)

Terry Gilliam

BUY $35.98


It is 1971, and journalist Raoul Duke barrels towards Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, accompanied by a trunkful of contraband and his slightly unhinged Samoan attorney, Dr. Gonzo. But what is ostensibly a cut-and-dry journalistic endeavor quickly descends into a feverish psychedelic odyssey and an excoriating dissection of the American way of life. Director Terry Gilliam and an all star cast (headlined by Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Torro) show no mercy, bringing Dr. Hunter S. Thompson's legendary Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas to the screen, creating a film both hilarious and savage.
